‘Heavily’ into Diablo III development, Blizzard refuses to ‘fix’ new art direction


Blizzard, the do-no-wrong developer of World of Warcraft and Diablo would like you to know that it’s already “heavily” into the development of Diablo III. The game is still without a release date, mind you.

In related news, Blizzard is also fully committed to the new art style found in Diablo III, which has been derided by 53,335 people (so far) for being too WoW-like. They went Diablo III to be more like he previous installments—dark and moody, full of supernatural mystique. Something to that effect. Be that as it may, Blizzard has no intentions of changing the game’s art direction.

Love it or leave it, in other words. When good ol’ Devin wakes up, we’ll get his take on this, being that he’s the resident Diablo guy.

Update by Devin: Looks fine to me, dude. And to be honest I really don’t see the WoW thing except in the exaggerated shapes. These people are getting worked up over a pretty minor (and subjective) artistic qualm.
